Hotstar Specials presents comedy-action series 'Hundred'
दो खिलाडी. प्रॉब्लम भारी. This summer Hotstar Specials has teamed up with R.A.T. Films to launch HUNDRED – a story that chronicles the many misadventures of two contrasting women, set in the backdrop of Mumbai, its chawls and crime gangs. A masala entertainer, HUNDRED marks the digital debut of Bollywood’s Lara Dutta and Marathi cinema’s Rinku Rajguru as they come together to form the most dysfunctional duo of 2020!
A terminally ill girl looking for thrills is hired to be an undercover agent by an ambitious female cop looking for a promotion. As they both unite to accomplish their own goal in 100 days, chaos ensues. Based in the by-lanes of Mumbai, the show has been shot across real locations of the city adding a certain level of realism to the narrative. Directors Ruchi Narain, Ashutosh Shah and Taher Shabbir have maintained a crisp balance between action, drama and humor that make HUNDRED a fun family entertainer. The cast includes power house talent in prominent roles including Karan Wahi, Sudhanshu Pandey, Parmeet Sethi, Rohini Hattangidi, Arun Nalawde and Makarand Deshpande. The 8-episode series will launch on 25th April 2020 only on Disney+ Hotstar VIP.
Actor Lara Dutta who portrays the character of ACP Saumya Shukla said, “Hotstar Specials presents HUNDRED is a fun and entertaining story of a dysfunctional jodi and the chaos that ensues in their lives. The makers have carefully scripted the show to bring alive action and humor in a very entertaining way. One of the many reasons I chose to do the show is because I have never played a cop on screen and my character is trying hard to survive in a man’s world. She has very interesting dynamics with the people in her life and the more complex a situation, the more she thrives. She is nothing like me in real life!”
Rinku Rajguru who marks her digital debut said, “It’s been a roller-coaster ride making my digital debut with Hotstar Specials presents HUNDRED – a show that has equal measures of comedy and crime. I portray the character of Netra Patil - a bindaas Marathi mulgi who is trying to live her life to the fullest. What drew me towards the show is the way this character has been molded – people will see a different side of her in each episode.”
Actor Karan Wahi added, “Hotstar Specials presents HUNDRED is a fantastic story that perfectly combines chaos, crime and comedy; making it a fun watch. It will hopefully give people a hundred reasons to smile and uplift their mood in these unprecedented times - it's just what the doctor ordered!”
Director Ruchi Narain added, “Hotstar Specials has created some groundbreaking content and we are super thrilled to team up with them for a show of this calibre! HUNDRED has all the elements of a family entertainer – action, drama, comedy, thrill and more! It’s a story where desperation leads two unlikely women – one bindass and the other badass - to team up as they chase their own personal goals.”
Directors Ashutosh Shah and Taher Shabbir concluded, “HUNDRED is fantastical crime and comedy fully based on whacky city of Bombay. It’s a story of a bindaas girl who meets a badass cop who together embark on a twisty yet fun filled road. It’s a full on family entertainer and what better platform for it to be on than Disney+ Hotstar VIP. Let the fun begin!”
